Dr. Michael Laidlaw, an endocrinologist from Rocklin, California, recently discovered via a Freedom of Information Act that a government-supported research program at the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles was experimenting on children as young as 8 years old with cross-sex hormones.
Dr. Johanna Olson-Kennedy, who runs the Los Angeles study, received a $5.7 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH.)
There are currently more than 30 clinics for transgender children in the U.S.
Olson-Kennedy’s clinic, the Center for Transyouth Health and Development at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, is the country’s largest, treating 725 children.

Dr. Laidlaw discussed his findings at a recent panel discussion sponsored by the Heritage Foundation.
Dr. Laidlaw said the minimum age for giving cross-sex hormones had been lowered from 13 to 8 in the NIH funded five-year study. He stated that there is an absence of clinical data on “transgender-affirming therapy” indicating it is a good idea or is at all healthy for the children.
Dr. Laidlaw stated that puberty blockers are administered on a wholly unscientific basis, relying on the child’s “gender identity.”
Such therapy can make the child sterile, a risk young children of that age are not old enough to understand.
Walt Heyer also spoke at the Heritage Foundation Panel, and refers to himself as a “former transgender.” He refers to such treatment as is funded by the NIH “child abuse,” and said he claims to have spoken to many transgender individuals who called transitioning “the biggest mistake” of their lives.
Another panel member was Dr. Marian Rutigliano, who questioned parents trusting doctors for knowing what is best for their children at such a young age. RT.com reports:
